The Administration Screen provides access to the control features of your Ecomly store. Since Ecomly is just a nice coat for WordPress, you can always search for WordPress articles if you are not familiar with some terms.
Each Administration Screen is presented in sections, the toolbar (and header), the main navigation, the work area, and the footer.
The Toolbar has links to various administration functions and is displayed at the top of each Administration Screen. Many Toolbar items expand (flyout) when hovered over to display more information.
Main Navigation menu details each of the administrative functions you can perform. At the bottom of that section is a Collapse menu button that shrinks the menu into a set of icons, or expands to list them by major function. Within each major function, such as Posts, the sub-menu expands (fly-out) when hovered over, and expands fully if an item is clicked.
In the work area, the specific information relating to a particular navigation choice, such as adding a new post, is presented and collected.
Footer, at the bottom of each Administration Screen in light shading, showing chat buttons and help center tutorials in case of Ecomly.
The Toolbar contains quick links to create new posts, pages, and links and notifications. Also, you can see your account details.
On the far right of the Toolbar is “Hi, User”, with an image of your Gravatar. When hovered over, this expands to link you to your Profile Screen as well as a LogOut link.
When you log in to your store, WordPress stores a so-called cookie in your web browser. This cookie allows WordPress to remember who you are; if you leave your blog’s site for a while but come back to it later, WordPress will see the cookie and not require you to log in again.
NOTE: If you have a WordPress cookie set in your web browser, anyone using your computer can access the Administration Screens of your blog. If you don’t want this to happen (perhaps you are using a public computer or a computer that other people use), you can click this Log Out link, and WordPress will delete the cookie from your web browser.
Screen Options, displayed as a hanging tab under the toolbar, allow the user to decide what fields or modules are presented in the work area for a given Administration Screen. Each Screen may have a different set of Screen Options.
Click on the Screen Options tab to expand the options available for a particular Screen, check (or uncheck) the desired options, then click the Screen Options hanging tab to collapse the Screen Options.
